A sustaining love

Meg

The Psalms are where my heart turned to this week. My devotional time has been sketchy, at best. The words of King David seemed the logical place to go to for some encouragement, and to start my day off on the right foot. I never get tired of the Psalms. There’s such a beautiful struggle that takes place there. The Psalmist faces so many temptations, battles, ups and downs. He’s unafraid to ask God to meet Him exactly where He’s at, day-in and day-out. My heart responds to such transparency. My heart loves reading of real people really struggling in this life.
“I lie down and sleep; I wake again because the Lord sustains me" (Psalm 3:5, HCSB)
"You have put more joy in my heart than they have when their grain and new wine abound. I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, Lord, make me live in safety" (Psalm 4:7-8, HCSB).
What a great reminder that each day we live is really not our own. We only wake because God has chosen to give us another day to live. Because He has an unfinished plan for us in this world. It certainly gives comfort in the face of unknowns. He protects, He keeps us safe, He knows the number of our days. Life is really out of our control in this regard.

“At daybreak, Lord, You hear my voice; at daybreak I plead my case to You and watch expectantly” (Psalm 5:3, HCSB).
I pour out my requests, my pleas, my worries to Jesus, knowing that He will provide in His timing. It’s so hard to give up the reigns, but so important. He will provide, in His own time. It’s frustrating when it’s not on my timetable, but He truly knows my heart. Why should I spend time worrying, when He has the details already worked out!

“But I enter Your house by the abundance of Your faithful love; I bow down toward Your holy temple in reverential awe of You” (Psalm 5:7, HCSB).

I loved the wording here. The “abundance” of God’s “faithful love.” It’s a large amount. It’s overflowing. It’s overpowering. It’s a love that surpasses my understanding. A love i truly don’t deserve. But He loves me anyway. And He loves you as well. Did you know that? Did you know how far His love for your stretches? In the face of such love, how can I fear? There really just isn’t room. His love is that amazing.
